GAGELIST® ONLINE CALIBRATION SOFTWARE

GageList may be customized to fit each users’ specific needs. The following settings may be configured. Changing a setting does not change your existing GageList Test Equipment and Calibration Records. However, it does change the options available to the users from within the forms.

Type (Equipment Type)

Figure 7: Type Selection Setup

Figure 7: Type Selection Setup

Type is used to set the available Types of Equipment that may be selected in the Test Equipment form.

The default list includes many types of testing and measurement equipment, but most will not require a list this long. Companies with a fairly static list of types of testing and measurement equipment can select only those items they need.

Use Restore Default Values to restore this field back to the GageList defaults.

Interval

Figure 8: Interval Selection Setup

Interval is used to set the form selection options to identify when test equipment must be calibrated.

Most companies use these defaults.

Some values, such as “Scheduled” must always be available to ensure some features, such as email notifications, work correctly. If a user tries to delete one of these, GageList will notify them. Just add the quoted term back into the selection or select Cancel to leave the page without saving changes.
